Iceni Velo Duff Morgan Chris Cross

Location: Snetterton, Norfolk NR16 2LP, United Kingdom

It was back to the arena and bomb hole for the end of year Chris Cross event hosted by Iceni Velo. Recent heavy rain turned the grass to mud in places, especially in the switchback zone, but light winds with a clear blue sky meant that the course wouldn't deteriorate too much. A race report by Fergus Muir is on the BC website: Chris Cross blows away Christmas cobwebs!

Vets (40-49) race

A nasty crash at the start of the vet 40-49 race saw a few people needing treatment from St John Ambulance and a trip to hospital; best wishes for a speedy recovery to those injured riders. The photos from the race were taken and very kindly supplied by Andrew Hughes, of Ipswich BC. Here's a video from that race, courtesy of Matt Ellis:
